Who is The X Factor host?

Dermot O'Leary is back as  host on the show.

Earlier this year, he admitted: "I admire Simon's bravery, he just thinks lets give it a go and see what happens.

"The audition process was filmed in Simon's house in Malibu in mid-July."

He continued: "There was something natural and warm and fun about it, the celebs picked a couple of songs and then auditioned as usual.

"It's going to be a competition and the people involved really want to win."

What is The X Factor: Celebrity winner’s prize?

Traditionally, the winner receives a £1 million record deal under Syco Music, while their winning single is usually known to land the Christmas Number 1 spot.

In recent years, however - and with the ratings decreasing – previous winners of the show have failed to land the Christmas top spot.

The Sun exclusively revealed that Simon is hoping to transform the fortunes of the star by offering a big money deal with his Syco record label and a shot at the Christmas No1 as a prize.
